“Operation Knightrider” was launched on 22 February when three columns of 30 army vehicles set off from Drawsko Pomorskie in northern Poland and then stopped in Łódź, before moving on to Nowa Dęba (in the south) to continue exercises with the Polish Army.

Polish soldiers from the Military Medical Training Centre in Łódź and the 25th Air Cavalry Brigade from Tomaszów Mazowiecki also took part in the event and displayed their equipment to the city’s residents.

The crowds which gathered were able to see the American Stryker transporters and Humvee vehicles.

“The goal of the ‘Operation Knightrider’ is to demonstrate NATO forces’ freedom of movement along NATO interior lines, as well as the US commitment to NATO security,” the US embassy in Poland wrote in a statement. (tf/rg)
